I don’t really have a craving for pickles, though I have once or twice, nor do I really eat them more. Then again, I’ve always loved pickles. I would be the one hoping that someone wouldn’t want the pickle that came with their sandwich platter so that I could have it. However, I do tend to eat the pickles that my husband takes off his burgers, but not all the time. There have even been times that pickles tasted completely off to me too.

Yes I am definitely eating more pickles but the type that I like has changed. I used to love the Claussens garlicky ones but now I only like the Vlasic baby dills. 

I’m not sure what it is tho. Something in the vinegar I think. I had heard that vinegar was supposed to help with heartburn but they don’t seem to do that for me.

I think I heard somewhere that it has to do with needing more sodium?? I loooove pickles!

My baby book says that pickles are a good source of sodium, and lots of pregnant women crave salty snacks.  Personally, I have never been a fan of pickles, but I now eat like a bag of corn chips a week!

I really like pickles, but when pregnant, I LOVE them, especially the little baby dill ones. I think my mom said it was something about the vinegar doing something to the calcium. I really like pickle and peanut butter sandwiches (and bacon and peanut butter!). I also love pepperoncinis and banana peppers on everything. Obviously, I haven’t gotten to the craving thing this time around yet.

I’m not pregnant, but this post totally made me crave pickles – just because I love them. I had to go eat one a few minutes ago. 🙂

I just ate some pickles…yum!  I love anything salty, like pickles, mustard, pepperoncinis, banana peppers, anchovies (yep, love em!), and capers.  Caper chicken is a fave right now!  But I’ve always liked that kind of stuff, it just got amped up since I got pregnant.

I’m not pregnant but I looooove pickles. When I buy them, I usually end up finishing the jar within a week. So yummy! In regards to the pickles and peanut butter, it’s not a pregnancy thing. my mom loves it that way!

@Roddy…totally non-pregnant! It started when I was in jr high and there was a vintage themed restaurant in San Diego we used to go to called Corvette Diner and they had burgers named after all the original musketeers. The burger called the Rory had peanut butter on it, and being the huge peanut butter freak that I am, I had to try it and I love, love, loved it!! There’s something about the smooth, sweet, nutty flavor and texture of the peanut butter and the sharpness of the pickle!!

Oh man, I want a pickle now, and I’m not even pregnant! 🙂

When I was in high school I worked at a pizza place, and there was a pregnant woman who came in and ordered a small pickle pizza a few times a week. Just red sauce, cheese and pickles! We all made a pickle pizza one night to try it, and actually, it was really good. The cheese and pickles were a great combo.

Peanut butter and banana sandwiches! So good! My brother, who is also obsessed with peanut butter, makes grilled peanut butter, marshmallow creme and banana sandwiches. Ridiculous good!!
